Raindance is the largest independent film festival in the UK. We work towards discovering, fostering and championing new talent and audiences - the lifeblood of the film industry.
The 16th annual Raindance film festival is taking place in London from the 1-12 October at the Cineworld Shaftesbury Avenue, with a few further screenings and masterclasses at the Rex Cinema and Bar on Rupert Street.
Featuring homegrown UK talent (including Flick, Nightwatching and Clubbed) the best in cutting-edge Japanese, European and global cinema, punk documentaries and non-fiction from around the world.
A few cuts of particular interest to DiSers:
From maverick author Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club) and breakout new writer-director Clark Gregg comes the subversively comedic tale of Victor Mancini, con artist, sex addict, Colonial villiage re-enactor, angst-filled son, serial restaurant choker…and unsuspecting romantic antihero for our modern times.

Following the multitalented and private artist over 11 years of international travel, through her spoken words, performances, lyrics, interviews, paintings, and photographs.
